It’s about privilege (Gatsby), I think...they just didn’t use that word in the way we do, then.

Alec D’Uberville in “Tess Of The D’Uervilles”. He’s manipulative, cruel and is a case study in gaslighting. He believes in his own privilege and takes what he wants, when he wants.
He destroys Tess’ life at every stage.

The character Heath Ledger played in Candy. I read the book before seeing the movie. He was a flat out a*s*hole.

Yes, often. I've even totally despised a character and then fallen in love with them (Thomas Covenant).
Oh totally. It took me three goes to get through the first series because of this issue!

The only character I can remember truly despising in recent years was the lead character in the Paullina Simmons novel Song in the Daylight.

I read "the bus on thursday" recently and I semi-despised that character. She was a bit too pathetic to totally despise but yeah, I didn't really enjoy meeting her.
